Incarcerated rapper Lil Boosie continues to make headlines as new reports claim he has been indicted for trying to smuggle drugs into a state prison.
According to reports, Boosie's latest charge was issued Thursday (July 14).
This time, the 28-year-old Baton Rouge rapper is accused of trying to get codeine into the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. Hatch, who is serving time on an unrelated drug charge, already is under indictment on a charge of conspiring to introduce illegal drugs into Dixon Correctional Institute at Jackson. (The Advocate)
In May, the Louisiana rapper landed a separate drug smuggling charge.
Troopers said Torrence Hatch, 28, and two others were allegedly in the process of trying to get codeine syrup into the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. The other suspects were identified asTitus Franklin, 27, and Arthur Stewart, also 27. All three men are from Baton Rouge. LSP detectives and the East Baton Rouge Violent Crimes Unit reported receiving information the trio was conspiring to smuggle the Schedule V Dangerous Controlled Substance (CDS) into Angola, where Hatch is incarcerated. Investigators said Stewart and Franklin made arrangements through an undercover agent to have the codeine delivered to Hatch. All three men have been charged with conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution. Hatch was also charged with inciting a felony. (WAFB News)
Earlier the same month, Boosie spoke on his experience behind bars.
"[I'm here] 'cause of the songs I made, before I was indicted, about the police in Baton Rouge and what's going on here," Boosie added. "There's a lot with our record label, that the system don't like...They took my hard drive out of my house after I got arrested. I have albums for days in there. They still haven't returned it. They've had it for d*mn near a year now. I need that music...I'm leaving Louisiana the first day I get out of prison. I'm a major target down here. I'll thank God for everything and get back to the money." (XXL Mag)
Last year, Boosie was indicted on murder charges dating back to October 2009.
Torrance "Lil Boosie" Hatch was indicted in the October 21st shooting death of Terry Boyd. Michael Louding and Adrian Pittman are also indicted on first degree charges on Boyd's murder. East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore says all three of the alleged killers meet the criteria of first degree charges. Moore said that the death penalty is not out of the question. Hatch and girlfriend Walnita Decuir along with a former Dixon Correctional Institute guard and an inmate were also indicted on drug charges. (WAFB News)
